The Orlando Sentinel has published online tonight a column I submitted about science education and it will be in the print edition tomorrow. Let me know what you think: Science ed needs a boost in Florida.
Science education in Florida’s public schools apparently is irrelevant in the eyes of our state’s decision makers. Other core subjects are undergoing significant changes with the goal of providing “a consistent, clear understanding of what students need to learn to succeed in college and careers,” according to Gov. Rick Scott.
Whether or not you agree with how the changes are being implemented, it can’t be denied significant action is taking place in reading, writing and math education.
But what about science?
